From a recent article in Time magazine:
We know what the birth of a revolution looks like: A student stands before a tank. A
fruit seller sets himself on fire. A line of monks link arms in a human chain. Crowds
surge, soldiers fire, gusts of rage pull down the monuments of tyrants, and maybe,
sometimes, justice rises from the flames.
But sometimes freedom and opportunity slip in through the back door, when a quieter
subversion of the status quo unleashes change that is just as revolutionary. This is the
tantalizing idea for activists concerned with poverty, with disease, with the rise of
violent extremism: if you want to change the world, invest in girls.
